A Motley Portrait

Motley Crue_07.22.15NaPoWriMo Day 2: Today, I challenge you to write a poem that takes the form of a family portrait. You could write, for example, a stanza for each member of your family. You could also find an actual snapshot of your family and write a poem about it, spending a little bit of time on each person in the picture. You don’t need to observe any particular form or meter. Happy writing!

A pre-concert photo that captures my heart
Left to right annotated
My nephew and his wife relocated
My son back from the Stan
His love reunited with her big man
My other nephew and his fiancé
Who made the trip from afar
My daughter, the bright shining star
My rock star of a man, my sweetheart true
And me in my Chuck-Ts
Wearing a smile as big as the rip in my jeans
The Final Tour, July 22, 2015
